Arts professionals are individuals who have honed their skills through experience and/or formal artistic or arts management training. These roles are usually team-based, incredibly varied, and offer opportunities to build up knowledge in multiple areas and art forms.

While creative practitioners focus on the creation of works, arts professionals are the essential facilitators: the technicians, lecturers, tour guides, editors, producers, sound engineers, art handlers, and curators. Without arts professionals, the arts world stops turning.

To get the ball rolling... start by doing some basic fact-finding about the roles of arts professionals in the arts world and assess where your personal interests lie.

  • Do you have a particular interest in a specific art form? (e.g. ballet, poetry, comedy) What roles exist around this art form?

  • Do you have a particular interest in a specific skill set? (e.g. technology, coordination, teaching people new skills) What art forms require this skill set?

Make it Better

The Learning Hub is designed for self-directed learning and development, to assist you in growing your personal and professional skills as you see fit. It is a free and democratic resource that adapts as the creative landscape changes; the sections and links you see are just examples of what is possible.

We invite everyone to build upon this current structure, to make the Learning Hub a state-wide go-to for all artists and arts workers seeking development and for anyone considering a career in the arts. All ideas, feedback or content suggestions are warmly welcomed through the Make It Better contributors portal.
